How much were their dresses? Are they flying in from out of town? I spent about $80 but that included their dresses.

I always felt like you should factor in what they spend on you. If they buy a $200 dress, you should buy them nice gifts or something really personal. I made a lot of my gifts, but, i also got them their dresses and told them they could buy whatever shoes they wanted in nude or gold. They all got them for like $20/pair and they had full reign.

No bridesmaid wants to spend $400 when it’s all said and done and get a $20 keychain Tongue out

OO i did see one bride who did this (now i wish i had). They were sterling silver bangle bracelets with messages engraved on the inside for the girls. A silver bangle (a quality, nice one) is a classic addition to any girls’ wardrobe.

That sounds nice, esp. if you all have similar tastes. The last wedding I was in, the bride gave us all out wedding day jewelry but since her and I have very different tastes, I’ve never worn the necklace, bracelet or earrings again. It was a similar situation, we paid about $100 for our dresses, could wear any black shoes and all lived in town (except her cousin). i guess if I had liked the jewelry, it would have reminded me of the wedding each time I wore it and been a nice keepsake.

I loooove nice pashminas. You can get them one in their favorite colors (so they don’t have to wear them at the wedding and all match, but i love those things) and they’re classy, timeless, and if you get the quality ones, that’d be all you need!

I’m thinking i might get them clutch purses and fill them up for the day (with mints, bobbypints, tide to go pens, tissues, etc.) I really like the ones from Etsy seller ViaBella
